Dan loved to spend time outdoors hunting, fishing, and gardening, as well as tinkering on his many projects. He was an accomplished arborist and landscaper, however was best known as a jack of all trades who loved to share his knowledge with everyone. Dan will be remembered for his sense of humor, unmatched strength, and big heart. He was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. Anyone who knew Dan knew that he was the most loving father, husband, and Papa, and had a gift of making everyone feel like family.
